Hmm, if they are mis-sized I suppose I don't have many options at this point except try to stretch them? It's enough of a difference to be annoying, especially after I bought the first pair and obtained a perfect fit and was expecting the same for the second pair of a different color. If there is such variation then online buying is very difficult.
